The media onslaught against Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump continued Sunday in defense of President Barack Hussein Obama being called a Muslim by a man attending a campaign rally last week.
And Trump continued to prove that he’s not easily intimidated.
Not only did the real estate tycoon stand his ground while making the rounds on the Sunday morning talk shows, he took it a step further during an appearance on NBC’s “Meet the Press,” daring to suggest that America may have already had a Muslim president.
Host Chuck Todd, who had put a similar question to Republican contender Ben Carson in an earlier interview, asked Trump if he would “support a Muslim president.” Todd didn’t add any context to justify such an unwarranted question, but Trump answered anyway.
“Would I be comfortable? I don’t know if we have to address it right now,” he replied. “Some people have said it already happened.”
Earlier in the segment, Trump said he feels strongly that “Muslims are excellent. I know so many Muslims that are such fabulous people.”
But he staying true to form, he eschewed political correctness in acknowledging reality.
“We can be politically correct and say there is no problem whatsoever,” he said. “But the fact is, there is a problem with some and it’s a very severe problem and it’s a problem that’s taking place all over the world.”
